In 2008 he participated in the creative process of “Tears of Barren Hill” and started working as multimedia designer and creative assistant for experimental stage performances of Danny Yung. In 2010 he designed the video of “Stage sisters” and tried to use projection to imitate the light and shadow.

From 2009 to 2018, he worked on designing video for the tour of “Flee By Night” and he helped set up a conversation between traditional practice and contemporary stage through a video design angle.
